List S3 Objects

List objects in one or more S3 buckets and optionally show metadata and ACL for each object.

List objects only in a specified subfolder or recursively list all objects in all subfolders.

Optionally include all versions of an object in the listing for buckets that have versioning enabled.

Include / exclude objects from the listing based on name, size, metadata, ACL, storage-class, encryption status, etc.

Filter listing using regular expressions or basic wildcards.

Show listing summary only and group S3 objects by extension, date, subfolder and more.

For example, list all objects with 'cache-control' header not set or 'cache-control' header not equal to a specified value.

For example, list only all public objects or only all private objects or only objects with a specified ACL.

For example, list all object whose size is larger than a specified value.

More than 25 different options available for the ls (list) command.

Upload Files to S3

Upload multiple files and whole directories to Amazon S3.

Uploads are fully restartable in case of failure.

Uploads can be automatically retried in case of an error (after X seconds and for X times, customizable).

Optimized parallel file transfers (multiple threads) to speed-up uploads.

Upload files using multipart uploads (with correct MD5 value) and multiple threads, so that large uploads can be restarted at any time from where they were left, if interrupted.

Server-side and/or client-side file encryption supported.

Keep the existing ACLs and/or metadata when overwriting existing S3 files.

Throttle maximum bandwidth to use in Kilobytes per second.

Select files to upload based on name, extension, size, subfolder, time, etc.

Copy objects instead of re-uploading if a matching object is found on S3, so that renaming an object does not require re-uploading again.

Move local files to Amazon S3 after successful upload, based on flexible criteria, e.g. file age, name, size etc.

More than 24 different options available for the put (upload) command.

Incremental Backup to S3

Upload only new and changed files. Using this type of upload you can perform fast, incremental backups to S3: only those files that are new or have changed, compared to the files that are already on S3, are uploaded. And if a file is renamed locally, the corresponding S3 file is copied not re-uploaded to save time and bandwidth.

Optionally, if a file is deleted locally, the corresponding S3 file can be removed or archived.
